Texas man hangs puppy from tree ‘out of boredom,’ police say



Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office arrested Claudio Gomez on Wednesday after a video surfaced on Facebook where he filmed himself hanging a small puppy from a tree resulting in the canine’s death.

The 21-year-old man has admitted to the crime, according to the sheriff’s office, adding that Gomez told them that he did it “out of boredom” and that the dog didn’t belong to him.

Authorities tracked down Gomez’s address from the Facebook video he posted, according to the sheriff’s office.

He has been charged with Cruelty to Non-Livestock Animals, a Texas state felony and his bond set at $10,000. Gomez did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.

The sheriff’s office says they were tipped off about the video by a concerned citizen. They said they are committed to holding people who mistreat or torture innocent animals accountable. They also said they encourage Hidalgo County residents to report any suspicious activity or any crime being committed.
